Treescapes (Greenwich, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Greenwich
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, garden and site plans (including plant lists), detailed information about the content of the slides, historical information about the house and site, and other information.
General:
This 20-acre site, including 10 acres of woodlands, was originally developed in the 1920s and is focused around its 1926 Cotswold/Tudor design house. Reflecting the desire of its original owner for quiet and privacy, the original landscape architect, Robert Ludlow Fowler, Jr., covered the house with ivy and planted apple trees, dogwoods, and linden, while allowing the landscape to be dominated by white pine, Norway spruce, cedar, hemlock, juniper and yew. A subsequent owner added a greenhouse and cottage while tearing down and/or moving several other buildings. Beginning in 1975 the current owners have transformed the gardens, replacing dying American dogwoods with a mix of new trees: weeping beech, katsuras, weeping cherry, and birches, among others. Other flowering trees and shrubs have brought color with every changing season. At least eight new gardens have been created. For example, the old Secret Garden with its well, which was an abandoned rose garden, became an azalea garden with an abundant variety of plant material. A new vegetable garden, a hosta garden, a wildflower garden, a boxwood garden, an informal New England-style garden, and a white garden are some of the special spaces that have been created. The addition of all these gardens has brought new splendor to the house while maintaining the feeling of serenity and elegance that is the site's heritage.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Delano & Aldrich (architects, 1925-26); Robert Ludlow Fowler, Jr. (landscape architect, 1926-30); Mary Jo Bridge Palmer (landscape architect, 1980); Armand Benedek (landscape architect, 1982); B. B. Stamates (landscape architect, 1988); Mary Patterson (landscape architect, 1989); Adam West (landscape architect, 1995-2000); William H. and Elizabeth Finnegan Fain (former owners, 1922-1940); and Elizabeth C. McBride (former owner, 1940-1975).

Home of Edith H. Ilmanen, formerly known as.
General:
The brick house was designed in 1914-1915 by architects Delano & Aldrich with a brick walled garden. Marian Coffin designed the perennial border. The grounds were designed to complement the house which was fashioned in the style of the English Arts and Crafts movement. The walled garden is a formal terraced garden situated near the house. Beyond the walled garden is a more naturalized, wooded area featuring a pond on the lower lying grounds.
Current owners of the property have undertaken a restoration of the property to reflect the original Delano and Aldrich design. The property has since received recognition from the New Haven Preservation Trust, the Connecticut chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
This garden was originally documented in 2005, at that time it was identified as the Home of Edith H. Ilmanen. An update of the garden documentation was provided in 2012, as the Elizabeth R. Hooker House.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Elizabeth Russell Hooker (former owner, 1911-1965); Edith Hooker Ilmanen (former owner, 1965-2004); Delano & Aldrich (architects, 1914-1915); and Marian Coffin (landscape architect, 1929 and 1940); and TPA Design Group (landscape architects, 2008).
